sometimes get to see the daughter crafts out and about

see this link http://www.craig-group.com/shipping/vessel.cfm

scroll to bottom and look at the daughter craft .......these were 250,000 each at the time probobly more now. not strictly ribs but not far off similar design

BP take SAR very serious ...they bought into a project called Jigsaw and purchased boats and 2 super puma mk11 helicopters and parked them offshore on rigs ....they are kitted out as good if not better than sar choppers and have saved 2 good friends lifes due to heart attacks offshore.
downside to the choppers is they can only carry a handful of men ...upside they are quick to arrive and can operate in most weathers .......i think we stop our flying when waves get above 6 metres due to the standby boats unable to do a rescue after that .......sar choppers can fly in some horrendous conditions ...we refeuled one on deck at 65knots

get to see our frc almost every day when they send the crew out for MOB excersises or more important ....the mail and newspapers ....these guys seem to love the big waves.

The 18.6m Daughter craft are the ARRCs - the Autonomous Rescue and Recovery craft,

The photos in the Northstar Link are the smaller 10m Phantom's and 11m comet. I think the Phantom in the shop at the minute is heading off to Northstar in the next week

Wonder if its the same, during the summer we had at least one undergoing sea trials and they berthed in the same marina as me on the river tyne, they were made by delta but had a cabin on top and looked like a lifeboat, they were orange on top with bp on them, cant remember what engines but they were huge and on jets, they were built as a fast all weather rescue and had 2 full operating tables inside, very impressive they were.
